Avatar f tn I just returned from the hospital and for the third time in the past three weeks my resting heart rate is 160 I am getting scared about what this means for my future. Will my heart give out sooner than I am ready to go? I am really beginning to get really upset by the possible problems I may face from this.
Avatar n tn I am 25 years old and within the last year I have had a handful of episodes of a sudden and unexplained onset of tachycardia following a palpitation. I would feel a flop in my chest followed immediately by a jump in heart rate to 160+ bpm. After a few minutes my heart would abruptly be restored to a normal resting heart rate and I would feel fine. I have had 2 ECG's and 2 chest x rays. Both ECG's found right bundle branch block, but the x rays of my heart were normal.
Avatar f tn Yesterday I spent the entire day in the ER and Labor & Delivery. My heart rate was in the 140's which is crazy high. They did testing for blood clots (vq scan) as well as chest x rays and an EKG. Of course lots of blood and urine testing too. Everything came back normal with no issues. Did or does anyone else have a crazy heart rate like this?
6691410 tn?1383794446 Her next suggestion was to take 4 x-rays (1 attached) to check for heart size and fluids in his lungs (possible early onset of congestive heart failure and or cardiomyopathy). $300 later the x-rays are examined and his heart size looks normal and no other advice (e.g.' fluids in his lungs) is provided. In other words I am not given a prognosis of any type nor prescribed any medication to deal with my dogs symptoms!
Avatar m tn my heart rate when sitting around watching tv is around 90 to 101 i have been diagnoised with panic disorder i have been to the hospital and it has gotten up to 160 before they did chest x rays and EKG they said it was in normal rhythm just fast and didn't do anything for it it does drop around to 80 to 70 beats but only when im really sleepy should i worry about this?
Avatar n tn I was wondering if anyone knows if there is a difference in what shows when comparing x-rays of feet and ankles that are weight bearing to x-rays that are non-weight bearing. Will something show up on the weight bearing that may not necessarily show up on the non-weight bearing. Especially possible fracture of the cubiod or calcaneous.
Avatar m tn Went in to make sure nothing was wrong, and they took 3 X-rays. One cervical spine, 2 lumbar views. I stood against a white background and she pointed the X-ray machine to the area, but the machine was about 2-3 feet away. She did not place a lead shield on me while conducting these X-rays. I'm very concerned I was exposed to too much radiation?! Plus I am breastfeeding, and my breasts were never covered.
Avatar m tn I got my reStor implants over two years ago, and never received any warnings about X-rays and such. Since then, I have had X-rays, an MRI, and gone through lots of airport scanners, and my opthalmologist says my eyes and lenses are fine.
6711838 tn?1405009844 I still assist and take X-rays with this baby also, the way they make X-ray machines now days, u get more radiation from the sun.. Good lick and Congrats!!
Avatar f tn As long as you were shielded properly you will be fine. I am a radiology technologist and I get asked all the time about it since I am pregnant. Patients always question why I'm taking x-rays pregnant. I always shield pregnant ladies with 2 shields. The radiation was just to your wrist which is a small amount. I wouldn't worry about it unless you weren't shielded.
1177817 tn?1286061570 Dr. Javiad took 2 chest x-rays today to make sure it's not my lungs.
690060 tn?1247841741 t believe it has anything to do with the radiation factor (subbsequent images will not produce a clear image with a fast beating heart) as a fast beating heart (ideal to get heart rate below 60) will not provide images that clearly delineate relevant objects. The borders will be fuzzy...same as with echocardiogram when estimating EF and chamber dimensions. Are you suggesting more images are CT scan are taken of a fast beating heart, and then compiled with the computer for the best image?
Avatar n tn I am a 48-YO woman 20-lbs overweight with high cholesterol and a family history of early heart disease. My GP saw x-rays of my spine (I have quite severe scoliosis/kyphosis lumbar and lesser in thorasic) and said my heart was a bit enlarged but that I shouldn't worry about it.
Avatar n tn I have had the same symptoms this week as well. A "tinge" on top part of left chest and a numb feeling in my upper left arm. I have had this before about a year ago. Just had an EKG, chest X-ray from front and left side, "clean x-rays", normal BP and pulse. Having a stress test on Wednesday. I agree, I think it is a pinched nerve or something around the chest/arm pit area. Doc said, maybe shingles but I don't believe it.
Avatar n tn Back February I was in the ER for a fast heart rate that was later determined to be caused by dehydration and I was also diagnosed with PVCs. While in the hospital they took a chest x-ray to determine if my heart was the right size. (We have history of heart issues in my family) Yesterday, I went to pick up a copy of my medical records and noticed that the radiologist noted the following, which was not told to me at the time of my visit to the ER.
Avatar n tn Hi, everyone, Just wanted to post that my dr stopped my tx on thursday afternoon. Thyroid went very hyper. Heart rate was 128 - 148 just racing and pressure on my chest, short of breath. Dr sent me to the er to have a ekg and tests, x-rays, & monitor heart for about 5 hours. Every thing came back okay except the blood work. Thyroid had gone down since a week ago wed. I feel much better. I think every thing will be fine.
Avatar m tn I told them my symptoms and they immediately thought I might have had a blood clot. .. EKG, bloodwork, and x rays again.. no abnormalities... they gave me a heart monitor to wear for two days... handed it in yesterday ... havent heard back yet.. last night not long after i handed it in.. i ate some pretzels and turkey meat before bed.. i had some really weird palpitations and increased heartrate, I was going to go into the er again, but I took two asprin and it slowly went away..
Avatar m tn Have discomfort in collarbone, left side of left breast, sometimes up my left side of neck. Also have random increase in heart rate. This has been going on for 3 years now. Have had 2 EKG's, 2 chest X-rays, an Echocardiogram, bloodwork, and wore a heart monitor for 48 hours. Everything came back fine. Was diagnosed with high blood pressure and very low amount of PVC's. On a beta blocker and a blood pressure medication, which have helped but still have these issues.

Avatar f tn They told me that they shielded the baby but I feel so guilty for doing it. Did anyone else take x rays during pregnancy?
Avatar m tn I had aortic valve replacement at the end of Jan. this year, tissue. Also the tricuspid valve was repaired and a bypass. My pulse is still 130. I thought my pulse would go down sooner but it is still crazy high. I am on warfarin and plavix. I am 61 and used to be very active. Never had other health issues. Allergic to metropol, and have low blood pressure. 98/60 usually. I have had Echos and EKG and x-rays.
Avatar f tn Findings: Frontal and lateral views. Heart size normal. Pulmonary vasculature normal. Lungs volumes are low. Questionable sub-centimeter nodular densities peripherallly in the right upper lobe, not well seen on lateral view. Left lung clear. No pleural fluid or pneumothorax. Impression: Questionable tiny clustered nodules right upper lobe laterally. This finding is of uncertain signifiance. CT scan is recommended for follow up. Please tell me what all this means. Thank you.
